Notes/Commercial Description:
Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices on the nose. A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate and fig fruits diving into a semi-dry finish of toast and biscuit.

A peculiar flavor that goes downhill, and not in the usual Colorado way. Dark brown, not much of a foam, though adequate carbonation in the mouth. Interesting aroma of burnt toast.

This starts with a slightly sweet mellow note and descends into a darker, dishwatery region. I guess you can tell your taste buds it's graham crackers. Seems to get oddly bitter like juniper twigs. Surprising winey flavor full of tannins. Not pleasant, and leaves a medicinal aftertaste. On tap at the brewpub in lower downtown Denver.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- nice, dark stout-like brew. Decent head and lacing.
Smell - roasted malts, a hint of the graham cracker, hence the name.
Taste - robust porter, some hint of graham cracker, but nothing that screams "name this graham cracker porter".
Feel - nit picking a bit, but as you continue to drink the beer seems a bit flat.
Overall - pricey, but expected. Admittedly, I'm not much of a porter drinker until Fall/Winter, so the timing of this review may be skewed.
